You don't want to click, you want to right-click (Windows) or control-click (Mac) so that you can download.

Rick, I'm totally baffled.

When I right-click on the 512Kb MPEG4 link, the following options are given: open link in new window, open link in new tab, bookmark this link, save link as, send link, copy link location, copy, search google for "512Kb MPEG4", view selection source, properties.

None of those options appears to allow me to download the video.

When I left-click the 512Kb MPEG4 link, the video plays, but doesn't seem to be saved to the hard drive.

Does anybody have an idea as what I can do to download the video to my hard drive? I'm tearing my hair in frustration!

Thanks, Bob

This has happened to me as well but not in a while, Look for the All Files HTTP link click that and then find the file you want and right click/save as. If I cant download from the details page this option works most of the time.
